COSpringssuspectsCOLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Colorado Springs Police arrested two men suspected of burglary Wednesday night after one of them shot at officers while fleeing by foot.

According to police, officers were called to a home on North Nevada Avenue Wednesday evening for a burglary in process.

The caller stated two suspects drove behind a home with a “No Trespassing” sign and were looking through windows with a flashlight. The caller claimed the two entered the home, exited and then left in their vehicle.

Upon arrival, officers contacted two potential suspects in a traffic stop. One was immediately detained while the other fled on foot. During the chase, at least one shot was fired by a suspect.

William Dandrea, 32, was arrested for attempted murder of an officer as well as an outstanding warrant for a parole violation.

The suspect who was immediately detained, Ryan Medlock, 34, was arrested on an unrelated warrant.

No burglary charges were filed after further investigation, which determined that the two had permission to be at the home.
